Teacher - Team Leader

  • Email Kristin Merino

This is my 28th year teaching, and I am happy to say all have been here in Kirby School District. I began my career teaching 5th grade at McAuliffe, then switched to 6th grade the following year. When Prairie View was built, I made the switch to middle school and stayed in sixth grade until nine years ago when I moved up to 7th grade. I have been a team leader for the past 19 years, taking one year off while I pursued my Master's Degree. I have taught every subject, but my heart is in Reading and Language Arts.

On a personal note, I have been married for 25 years and have two sons (23 and 20) and a daughter (17). My favorite things to do are watch my sons play baseball, my daughter play basketball, or read a good book.
